sweden red farms

For her drawings “Sweden red farm” Eva-Maria Raab uses the images found on “google”, when searching for “Sweden red farm”, evoking a very picturesque landscape. By drawing directly with the traditional "faluröd" paint, she creates an abstract and at the same time stereotype view of the Swedish landscape. The paint originated historically from various copper mines in Sweden and remains still popular today due to its effectiveness in preserving wood.
